Description:

Murrina Humanity is an attempt to create a consistent and functional dark theme with an Ubuntuish colour scheme. It is darker, subtler and more heavily saturated than Dark Room.

I've been working on and using this theme for about three months now, during which period it's gone through two complete re-writes and numerous bug fixes and cosmetic alterations. That said, I'm sure I've missed many things. Bug reports and bug fixes are welcome, as are aesthetic suggestions.

Dark GTK+ themes have a number of inherent problems in Firefox and, especially, OpenOffice. I do not think there is a solution at present, short of making sure (which I have) that most everything can be read even if it's dark on dark or light on light.

Saturation is hard to get right for different screens and their users. If you toy around with alternative values, I'd like to hear what you come up with. It's easy to do so using GNOME Apperance Preferences or editing the values in the gtkrc on line 10.

There are still things to be done. Consider this a beta release.

Colour scheme based on the following palette: http://kuler.adobe.com/#themeID/85552

GTK+ based on and inspired by: DarkRoom 0.28.6 by Kenneth Wimer & Conn O'Griofa, Shiki-Colors 2.1 by perfectska04, and LUX 0.9x by SzerencseFia.

Nice looking theme. It installs just fine but when I try to use it, nothing happens. I changed the profile to "CLEARLOOKS" as well and still nothing.

I started up The Widget Factory and I see this error :

gtkrc:80: error: unexpected identifier `focus_color', expected character `}'


Is this a bug in the gtkrc file, do I need to install a certain package, or something else?

Thanks!

I forgot to mention that you need a newish version (0.90.2 or later) of the murrine engine. How you go about getting it depends on your distro.

Ubuntu debs: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Murrine+Engine+(Ubuntu+Packages)?content=99516

If you're not on ubuntu and you don't want to compile, you may have to wait a little bit for your distro to catch up.

Possible temporary fixes: if you're using 0.90.0 or earlier, try commenting out the line. If you're on 0.90.1, your hiccup may be fixed by altering "@tooltip_bg_color" on line 80 to "#ffe5c0".

Hope this helps.

No problems here working fine. Are you sure you have a recent version of the Murrine engine installed properly?

Not to dark.. been looking forward to this theme as all Paraboy's themes are extremely good.

Not only are they immaculately finished with great functional co-ordinated color schemes. They are small,fast and light because of his dogged attention to the fine point details of coding gtk themes.

Now let me get at that beautifully documented code and burn a few more braincells out...

Thanks, but I'm pretty sure any comments that don't look at like the jottings of a lunatic ("# Why 14 !!!") are not by my hand :)
